Tom Walker and his wife were super greedy people that always hid money from each other. One day he took a shortcut on his way home and met the devil and the devil offered him the Kidd pirate´s treasure. Later that same day he went home and told his wife about the deal and she told him to take it.
He didn´t want to take the deal so his wife went by herself to see the devil and take the offer. Days passed and the wife was missing so Tom decided to look for her, he arrived at the swamp and the only thing he found was her heart and her liver.
He was so happy about what he saw at the swamp because now he could make the deal himself, so he went to look for the devil to seal the deal. The Devil found Tom and told him that he will give him the treasure but told him that the treasure will come with a payment somehow.
Years passed and Tom was fully blind of money, he lived stealing money from people by putting high taxes and lying. Until one day someone came across his door asking for a chance to pay later, but Tom refuse. The man told him that he was stealing from him and that he had no more no he needed more time. Tom was so pissed off because he was called a stealer so he said "The Devil take me if I have made a farthing!".
And so was it, the Devil knock three time the door and came for Tom, taking him away with a black horse and Tom was never saw again.
Since that day people say that his ghost walks the site of the old fortress, and have no way of resting.
